An indignant letter written by a Titanic survivor to a friend in New York sold at auction this week for $11,875 (Rs 7.29 lakh), according to RR Auction in Boston. The remarks were written on Lady Lucy Duff-Gordon's personal letterhead and dated May 27, 1912 -- six weeks after HMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage -- seem to indicate that she and her husband, Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon, didn't receive such a warm welcome home after their rescue.
